    Hi ! I am trying to execute an external file i.e abc.exe from php but it is not working.
    I have used the following code:
    Code:
    <?php
    	exec("executable1.exe -o arg1 arg2");
    	shell_exec("executable1.exe -o arg1 arg2");
    	system("executable1.exe -o arg1 arg2");
    ?>
    
    None of the commands seem to be working. What's wrong in the code?

    It may sound funny to all. I developed a software in Windows and transferred to server which is Linux Server. This was the reason EXE files were not working there.
